I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!

  1. Cut a 7” length of wire. Loop one end of the wire through a jump ring, twist and fold back down along the remaining length.
  2. String eight glass beads of one color, a bead cap facing the beads, a second bead cap in the opposite direction and the remaining eight glass beads. Add a jump ring, secure the wire and feed balance of wire back through the glass beads. Repeat two more times with additional glass beads.
  3. Bend the wire at the bead caps to create a “V”.
  4. Add jump rings to connect the three beaded “V’s”.
  5. Determine the desired length of the necklace and cut the appropriate lengths of fat oval gold chain.
  6. Attach the chain lengths using jump rings to the top of the last connecting jump ring of the “V’s”.
  7. Complete by adding the lobster butterfly clasp to the ends using a jump ring.
Tip: Experiment with different bead patterns to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
